HUGH: Beautifully done.

JOEL: So, in your hallowed view, creation from nothing is a fact? Keep hallucinating.

BTW, can you give me one example of creation from nothing in nature/life?

As for mystical substance, some occultists and even a renowned physicist like Max Planck say/said that consciousness is the mystical substance that underlies and interpenetrates energy/matter which is why they argue universe is fine tuned and which is why sentience arose in the universe.

After a lot of thought backed by yogic experience and after perusing plenty of scientific literature on the subject I am these days more likely to think that consciousness gradually develops out of material activity but I have serious doubts....

No scientist can pinpoint the exact mechanism of how consciousness develops in say the human brain nor can consciousness be replicated in a material system in the lab.

What if a well preserved, fully formed human brain of a dead person is subjected to all the right EM frequencies (typical to actual brain activity) transferred into it via a set of electrodes will the brain in such an experiment manifest sentience? I don't think so.

By using external electrical impulses in the gamma range (which is the normal frequency at which a human brain works when the person is alive) can a corpse be revived? I don't think so.

Using electrical impulses can a person in a comatose state be revived? I don't think so.

So, well, all talk of consciousness being a product of brain activity collapses in these circumstances as detailed above.

That consciousness is affected by psychoactive drudge or by surgery to various parts of the brain is only to be expected since brain in the mystical view is simply an instrument to transmit consciousness. This position is also held by a few prominent scientists.

So, the fundamental question - what is consciousness remains unanswered.

Jesus was just a jew.
Shouldn't be the least of the worries of the Europeans.

Europeans should be more occupied by getting rid of Christianity in Europe.
Christianity is a poison, a mind virus.

Priest have from early age alwasys been the biggest enemies of freedom, they ave tortured scientists and our pagan rooted europeans.

Christianity is what unfortunatly has evolved to Socialism and the state today.

Here's wishing you a long, safe, healthy, peaceful and happy life.

Had I been living in your city, I'd have regularly dropped in to check if you're ok or if you so desired would have been more than willing to have served you in any way.

At times when I think of you a certain fondness arises in my mind.

Take care.

Christ was and is always kind to women (and men for that matter) he didn't require them to remain silent, he actively listened as women spoke and he spoke with them, he was kind to all, even gentiles to whom he was not sent.

He didnít demand people to posture themselves; to make long rituals, or make anyone follow mans traditions before coming into his presence.

Christ didnít require head coverings or for anyone to dress a certain way, just come as you are. Why does any man or woman require it today? Thereís no good reason for it now either.

Is there anywhere that the true church isn't? It is always where two or more are gathered in his name, men or women are in the presence of the savior.

Men and women have always tried manipulating in their own ways. Believe in the freedom Christ gives us and his word of truth.

Political correctness and worldly religion is like keeping up with the Jones. It is nothing more than overbearing peer control.

At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.(Matthew)

Women have always been apart of creation from the Garden of Eden, made in the Fathers own hands like men are. How hard is it for you to accept women keep Christís commands and even save many souls in his name?

We are still living the New Testament of Christ the Lord. What was old is new again in Christ and his word is still transpiring even through and well within the book of Revelation.

Romans: As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved.

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

God gives freely of the Spirit to men and women in Christ and we need to exercise our spiritual self do well to please the Father, the Great I AM.

And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams (Acts)

Let your Spirit self within you shine your light and worship God in Spirit and truth in Christian fellowship.

Who is anyone to say Christ selected a male Apostle with any less confidence than he chose a female Apostle? God created both male and female with his hands, shouldn't Christ have the same reverence for whom he has chosen!

I believe that these are the last days I think prophetic intercession for Israel is as Christ dictates how he fulfills it, don't you? Women have always made decisions with Spiritual discernment.

'Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.'(Matthew)

We should live humbly Holy lives righteously with Mercy,(not demanding recompense as Christ gave of himself) showing Love,(to each other and even to our enemies) giving Charity (not expecting anything in return) and in the Lords Grace (accepting for ourselves and forgiving others in its unearned acceptance) in abiding in this world under God accordingly.

Psalms: The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever. The ordinances of the LORD are sure and altogether righteous. They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb. By them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.

Is there an INTERNATIONAL MOLE DAY? Jeez, I've forgotten most of the theory on mole concept which I had mastered during school years 9th Grade to 12th as part of my intense preparation for the IIT entrance exam. At the IIT entrance exam quite a few extremely tricky questions on mole concept are usually asked. They usually combine the mole concept with equivalents, titrimetry, gravimetry, volumetry, gas eudiometry, electrolysis, thermodynamics and other topics.

Tell me this: The Jews anticipate a spiritual-political figure? Christians believe the Christ saved his people mainly from the spiritual oppressors of sin and death.. The jews are still awaiting the messiah, christians believe that jesus of nazareth was the messiah.. So are nation believe's he has came, the jewish are still awaiting? Gnostics taught that jesus, was not really a physical person, since the body is evil, and that the old testament god, yahweh, who had created bodies and matter. Was really the devil.. The word god means infinite goodness, so nothing evil can come from it.. I personaly believe satan created what we see with our eyes.. But im no pro, im a young pup on search for the truth, thats why I enjoy this thread.. Love all, and peace to all.

Oh, the war against male head coverings.

I knew it had to happen eventually.

After the rest of the worlds issues are solved, such as poverty, hunger, environmental destruction, and spiritual imperialism/evangelicalism.

Take care.
rabbee: as well as can be expected, in this world that is against all of this. there is no guarantee of safety, from evil subtle talking critters in charge of this cruel thinking world their way. everyone's fate is all tied, to how we mistreat others. as their subtle lies are at the root, of all this worlds evil and wickedness. there is no trust in governments that place their people, in harms way so as to pretend they are keeping you safe in idolatry.

you need not worry about me, my fate is assured here in TheTorah. as the results of this worlds evil choices, our fates are already predetermined without repent. my life is determined by what G-D says, not by what the world says. even as the most harmful, seek to harm, the less harmful. i would like to live in a world of peace too all, but must realize i live in this world that is against peace on earth and good will to all men. as the governments of this world, project their evil onto their own masses.
